My viral load has risen, what can I do?
I’m adhering to my medication, however I’ve just been told that my viral load is 50,000. I’m really worried, more so because I have a 4 month old baby.
Thanks for getting in touch.
If your viral load has risen and you’re adhering to your medication this implies that your treatment isn’t working like it should do. This is something that you’re going to need to talk to your doctor about. There’s more about this here: http://i-base.info/guides/changing
If you’re breastfeeding your baby, you’re going to need to switch to formula. This is important as there could be an increased risk for your baby. If your baby hasn’t been tested yet, they’re going to need to be tested.
